Christmas is around the corner, and Black Sheep founder and Chairman Paul Theakston wishes to share a special Christmas message to members of the public across the country. After founding the Black Sheep Brewery back in 1992, Mr Theakston is calling upon the public, ale lovers or not, to pop into their local over the Christmas period in order to support pubs and the local economy. http://youtu.be/tRvKZ01Pug8 Filmed in the award-winning Wensleydale Heifer in West Witton, itself a delightful place to enjoy some fine ales including Black Sheep’s cask best bitter, Mr Theakston said, “The pub is the heart of many communities up and down the country. It is a proud tradition going back centuries. If every adult in the country visited a pub at least once this Christmas, it would be a huge support for your local.” “Pubs inject an average of £180,000 into their local economy each year. Almost a million UK jobs depend upon the beer and pub sector, accounting for £12 billion in wages and more than £7.2 billion in tax revenues.” So make sure you share a very Merry Christmas at your local pub this year, and don’t forget to drink responsibly!
